Al-Hasakah: 2 m people face imminent catastrophe as drinking water lacks

Since the second day of the Turkish occupation attack, water distribution centers in Tel Tamr and Al-Hasakah have been interrupted due to the bombardment by the Turkish occupation army of the main pump in Serekaniye.

As usual, every time the Turkish occupation army attacks areas of northeastern Syria, in the context of the scorched earth policy, it strikes infrastructure and vital facilities. This time the Turkish occupation bombed the water station located in the village of "Aluk" in Serekaniye.

Aluk, located in the countryside of Serekaniye, is the main water distribution station. It contains about 30 sea wells and 12 pumps. It is considered the most important stations in the region of al-Jazeera due to the quality of water in it.

As a result of the Turkish bombardment, the station stopped working due to its damage, and the competent cadres could not work on its maintenance due to the continuous shelling.

Since yesterday, water from the city of Tal Tamr was completely lacking and the people’s municipality was forced to distribute its remaining water in fire extinguishers and tanks to civilians, but a number of families are unable to obtain water.

The co-chair of the municipality of the people in Tal Tamr Mohammed Khalo warned of a humanitarian catastrophe if the Turkish occupation army does not stop bombing the area, and appealed to the United Nations to intervene quickly and see the conditions of the people in the city.

He noted that the water was cut from the city of Tal Tamer two days ago, while the municipal capacity is not enough to provide water for more than twenty thousand families living in the city after displacing from Serekaniye.

About 2 million people live in the areas of Tal Tamr, Hassakeh, Al Hol and Shaddadi, and are mainly dependent on water from the Aluk plant, Khallo said.

It is noteworthy that tens of thousands of the people of Serekaniye fled the bombing of the Turkish occupation now live in the center of the city of Tel Tamer where they brush up in the open or live in schools.

He appealed to the United Nations to intervene quickly to get acquainted with the situation of civilians in the region and to avoid a humanitarian disaster.
